College Football - Bowl Season Part One
by undertherobe on 17 Dec at 23:26
So we’re all done with another College Football regular season and despite the move to a four team playoff deciding by a committee rather than a computer, the final rankings were not without controversy as TCU were dropped from no.3 to no.6 to miss out on the playoffs altogether. As for the results from this blog, since Week Eight it’s been a winning week in all but one week as I’ve gone 15-8 over that span. Including the National Championship game, there are 39 Bowl games this year so plenty of opportunities to build on a strong second half of the season and finish the year in profit as overall on the year I’ve gone 21-22 with one push. In my season preview (view it HERE) I backed Oregon and Oklahoma to win the National Championship. Oklahoma went 0-3 against Top..

In this blog i am looking at all 6 races over the last 5 runnings of each race, the meeting was cancelled in 2010 due to bad weather so i am going back to 2008 for the 5th year.

by tbuckley on 18 Dec at 00:39
Statistics and thoughts for all Live Premier League Fixtures over Christmas Christmas is now well upon us all with Christmas Day itself just a week away and for the football world Christmas means an hectic, intense schedule of matches with matches coming thick and fast. Now all the footballers and especially their own families might not be delighted about the Christmas football schedule but for all of us football fans it's fantastic having all the matches to watch, discuss and get involved in. Personally speaking I'm really looking forward to watching and having an interest in as many matches as possible this Christmas but I also want to make sure I spend my time off work chilling out with a big part of that spending less time on the PC. I love to look at all the matches in detail ie the betting..
Weekly Euro Football Predictor 2014 - WEEK 15
by botev1921 on 18 Dec at 22:25
After the great season we had last year and the tons of positive messages regarding our Weekly Euro Football Blog, we are back with a bigger team and even more determined to help you out with well-developed selections on the biggest European leagues and the Champions league. The idea behind the blog is to get differing opinions on the best bets for the best matches in Europe over the weekend from a panel of experts. Each tipster provides their perception of the way the game will pan out and where the value bet in the mass football markets might be. These opinions can be used in any way you wish. You may wish to take one bet where the panel agrees (signalled out as CONSENSUS PICK) and add that to existing bets you have or mix and match the various European..
It's time to start backing the Blue Jackets
by Epic on 13 Dec at 11:57
Looking at the current NHL league standings, it can be said that the Columbus Blue Jackets have been one of the biggest disappointments of the season. Looks can be deceiving though. The young club, which reached the playoffs for only the second time in its history last season, has so far been ravaged by injuries and this has held them back. So far the Jackets have just 24 points from 28 games. Only the Carolina Hurricanes have a worse record in the Eastern Conference. But there is light in the tunnel. The team has gained great momentum in December, so far winning all five games. The infirmary is starting to clear and it seems like the team is ready to start climbing up from the bottom. Right now there are five players still missing - leaving out forward Nathan Horton, whose career..
Liverpool v Arsenal - Goals Over 2/1
by nors on 17 Dec at 14:50
Last season this match saw a rout by Liverpool 5-1 as Arsenal were blown away by the speed and intensity of Brendan Rodgers title chasers. Prior to this Arsenal had an OK record at Anfield having avoided defeat in their last 5 meetings. In 2014/15 we have a different Liverpool to take on, they have had a terrible run of results and unless they turn it around quickly then any hope of a top 4 finish will disappear. However wounded animals are dangerous and in Liverpool we have such an animal. So we have a home team that need to win but who are lacking in confidence and good recent results. Liverpool also have goalkeeper issues having dropped Mignolet for the reserve keeper Brad Jones. Jones to me does not have the presence of a Premiership keeper and this lack..
